The day Michael Jackson caught fire

I was never a slobbering Michael Jackson fan, and all the coverage over his death got old for me on about day two.

But here's an amazing, never-before-seen video of a little-remembered incident from 1984 when some pyrotechnics set Jackson's hair on fire. It's really scary stuff, and quite graphic.

You can see him still dancing even after flames are leaping off his head, which is disturbing. And there's a clear shot of his now partially bald head and singed scalp after the incident.

UPDATE: Sorry, but I took the video down. It was set to auto-play upon opening the page, and the laundry bleach ad got a little annoying for my taste.

If you want to see the vid, you can just click here.
